used tires on the ebay
« on: May 27, 2022, 02:38:22 PM »

So you can buy used tires on the ebay, with free delivery? well, slap my pappy...

cuz i have two old cars that need "new" spare tires, and i is not made of money

Now if one of these sellers will tell me something about the date codes on these tires, I'd be a little more interested.
I do not own a boat. I still have all my guns, cuz this is America.

FWIW, I've bought tires for my van there, and I'm happy with them. The guy is a pretty square shooter.
 
That said, if you keep your spares out of the sun, they should last fairly decently.

One's obviously roached. The other looks great, but it's 18 years old.

Around here, tire shops won't touch a tire that's more than 10 years old.

Liability insurance issue.

IF...
 
If you don't have cracking, etc., and you don't drive at high speeds, you likely can get away with an older tire. Cracking is very bad - lose that. And don't run over 55...

I guess I wouldn't be as worried about it if it hadn't been completely empty when I found it. And if it weren't the wife's car.

Good tip, Mr. Bogart. They were the only place I called that had one of both the sizes I needed. Took them less than 15 minutes. Tires look good, too.
